Invincible Kungfu Healer Chapter 557
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
There were five people from Weapon Forging Sect, including four older members and one youth. The youth was undoubtedly Jiang Gujian.
Amongst the five of them, there were two ancient martial art practitioners with the intermediate stage of the Golden Elixir realm. The other two were not of the average beginning stage of the Golden Elixir realm either. However, even with such strong powers, they were still unable to easily kill off the Winged Demonic Leopard.
The Winged Demonic Leopard was a monstrous beast that was very rarely seen in the abyss. Its individual abilities were very strong. Although it was only of the intermediate stage of the seventh level, it was definitely the strongest of all the monstrous beasts of that stage. Even a human ancient martial art practitioner in the final stage of the Golden Elixir realm would not find it easy to kill it.
Moreover, the Winged Demonic Leopard had very high intelligence. It was normally very crafty and would not use brute force against human ancient martial art practitioners. The moment it encountered danger, it would immediately hide in the gale region.
However, nobody knew how but it seemed as though Weapon Forging Sect had used some method in order to trap the Winged Demonic Leopard in the region without any gales. It was unable to escape from the attack launched by the four people, who had it surrounded. If it had been able to escape, the Winged Demonic Leopard’s cautious behavior would have definitely meant it would not have fought with the masters of Weapon Forging Sect for such a long time.
“That’s not good, someone noticed us.”
When the group from Intentionless Sect noticed the Winged Demonic Leopard and the people of Weapon Forging Sect, the people of Weapon Forging Sect naturally noticed them as well. The expression of Yan Tao, the Deputy Sect Leader, grew cold. He had gone to so much trouble in order to trap the Winged Demonic Leopard. They could not afford to have people complicate their problems right now.
Everyone knew that the Winged Demonic Leopard had the Green Primordial Mirror, which possessed top grade spiritual energy. Anybody who encountered it would try to obtain it. Hence, when they noticed the people from Intentionless Sect, the few masters from Weapon Forging Sect immediately grew tense.
“No wonder the respectable sect leader of Intentionless Sect has graced us with his presence. Please excuse me, Yan Tao, for my impoliteness in only acknowledging you from afar. I hope that sect leader Chen Wuhui can leave us some pride. In the future, Weapon Forging Sect will definitely remember your favor. We will treat Intentionless Sect as our brother sect.”
Yan Tao was guarding the Winged Demonic Leopard so that it would not escape. At the same time, he saluted towards Chen Wuhui by cupping his hand against a fist. His meaning was very clear. He hoped that Intentionless Sect would not interfere with Weapon Forging Sect’s things, and even more so hoped that they would not covet the Green Primordial Mirror.
“Sect Leader Yan Tao, you have overstated things. We will definitely give due respect to Weapon Forging Sect. However, the treasures in the abyss are not owned by anyone. Everyone has the right to fight for them. Regarding that, I believe Sect Leader Yan Tao has no objections?”
Chen Wuhui smiled slightly. He was not an old fogey. How could he possibly give up contending for the Green Primordial Mirror simply based on two to three sentences by Yan Tao? Although Weapon Forging Sect was strong, they were not strong enough to scare Intentionless Sect into retreating.
Although he did not know what method Weapon Forging Sect had used to trap the Winged Demonic Leopard, this was undoubtedly the best time to obtain the Green Primordial Mirror. If they missed this chance, he was afraid that they would not get such a chance again in their entire lives.
“What does Sect Leader Chen mean? If Intentionless Sect agrees to not interfere in this matter, Weapon Forging Sect is willing to take 500 divine weapons from our store and gift them to Intentionless Sect. If Intentionless Sect still insists on interfering in this, we will say unabashedly that your actions are akin to declaring war against Weapon Forging Sect. When we go back out, you had better not regret your decision.”
Yan Tao’s expression grew cold immediately. He could not afford for anything to go wrong with them obtaining the Green Primordial Mirror.
500 divine weapons! When the Sect Elder, Wang Qiusheng, heard that, he breathed in coldly. Weapon Forging Sect was a sect renowned for the weapons it produced. The weapons they produced were definitely the best in all of the Green Ancient Mystery Dimension. Even if they wanted to, other sects would not be able to get their hands on them.
Every year, Intentionless Sect had to spend a lot of resources in buying weapons from Weapon Forging Sect. Although the weapons that Weapon Forging Sect crafted could not be compared to the spiritual weapons of Immortal Cultivators, it was impossible for everyone in Green Ancient Mystery Dimension to own a spiritual weapon anyway. Meanwhile, if a major sect could own a spiritual weapon, it would be a very good foundation for the sect.
Usually, the weapons that the average disciples in a sect used were also categorized into levels. The power of the weapon could determine a person’s abilities, as well as the outcome of a battle. It could be said that to an ancient martial art practitioner, a strong weapon was something very vital.
In the Green Ancient Mystery Dimension, divine weapons crafted by the Weapon Crafting Sect were of the highest rank. A rank lower than that would be the normal weapons crafted by Weapon Forging Sect. The worst ones were those weapons crafted by the average blacksmiths.
Not all weapons crafted by the Weapon Forging Sect could be hailed as divine weapons. There was a limit of divine weapons produced in a year, even for Weapon Forging Sect.
However, there was no doubt that there was a huge difference between ancient martial art practitioners with divine weapons and those without, even if they had the same cultivation.
The two Intentionless Sect Elders had gotten a shock upon hearing the offer of 500 divine weapons. It was not an easy task to buy divine weapons from Weapon Forging Sect. If Intentionless Sect pooled together all their divine weapons, they would not even add up to 500.
Hence, it could be seen just how rich of a resource 500 divine weapons were. Having them was sufficient to raise the level of Intentionless Sect by a huge margin.
Yan Tao’s motive behind offering 500 divine weapons as a reward, then threatening them with Weapon Forging Sect’s power was to force the people of Intentionless Sect to back off.
“Yan Tao, you really treat me as an old fogey. Don’t talk about 500 divine weapons, even if you offered 1000 or 2000, they would not be worth a mention next to the Green Primordial Mirror. For such a treasure, fate has to decide whose hands it will fall into.”
Chen Wuhui simply did not care about Yan Tao. The offer of 500 divine weapons was indeed tempting. However, it was not even on the same level as the Green Primordial Mirror.
Moreover, Yan Tao was merely paying lip service. It was difficult to say if he would still keep his promise after obtaining the Green Primordial Mirror successfully. Things that could be spouted so easily could not be trusted.
The group of people from Intentionless Sect seemed to ignore those from Weapon Forging Sect. They simply approached them. However, they were not in a hurry to attack. Their aim was simply to win the Green Primordial Mirror, and not to fight Weapon Forging Sect to their death.
The most suitable time to act would be after Weapon Forging Sect had killed the Winged Demonic Leopard and obtained the Green Primordial Mirror.
“Yin Banshuang, why are you here too?”
Only after they had flown forward did the people from Weapon Forging Sect notice Yin Banshuang. The expressions of Yan Tao and the Sect Great Elder, Yuan Chaoguang, changed immediately. Weapon Forging Sect could have gotten Intentionless Sect to think twice. However, if Five Beasts Sect got involved as well, their Weapon Forging Sect would lose their strength advantage.
“Yin Banshuang came alone. The masters of Five Beasts Sect did not come with her.” At that moment, Jiang Gujian opened his mouth to speak. Previously, in the fourth layer, Yin Banshuang had been forced to retreat by people from Xingyi Sect. If the masters from Five Beasts Sect were around, such a situation would not have occurred.
Even in the absence of Five Beasts Sect however, their circumstances were not very positive. The group of people from Intentionless Sect had at least seven people. Meanwhile, there were only four of them on their side. Although all four of them were masters, Intentionless Sect was not too weak against them on the whole.
Chen Wuhui had been an intermediate stage Golden Elixir realm ancient martial art practitioner for decades, yet Intentionless Sect was also strong without him. Chen Zikuang was another person that was hard to handle. Also, there was the mysterious youth who did not seem like a simple character. Those three people alone were enough to make Weapon Forging Sect wary. Yet, they also had Yin Banshuang with them, making up four ancient martial art practitioners with the Golden Elixir realm.
However, neither Yan Tao nor Jiang Gujian recognized the young girl in blue at all. As she was so young but already of the Golden Elixir realm, she definitely had to be someone exceptional.
“Intentionless Sect, you guys had better not misunderstand. Don’t think that after defeating Sacred Flame Sect, you can come and bully our Weapon Forging Sect. If you give up now, my conditions from before still stand, and we will raise the reward to 1000 divine weapons instead. However, if you continue to cause trouble, Weapon Forging Sect will definitely send its army to fight for justice.”
Yuan Chaoguang was an old man whose expression looked fierce. The moment he opened his mouth, he had doubled the offer of divine weapons from 500 to 1000. Clearly, he was of rather a high status in Weapon Forging Sect.
“You people of Weapon Forging Sect are ridiculous. Everyone has the right to contend for the treasures in the abyss. We will each use our methods and the fated ones will obtain it. Since when did the Green Ancient Mystery Dimension belong to your Weapon Forging Sect?” Mo Wen laughed as he walked towards them. In two to three steps, he was already only about 100 meters away from the battle area. The Winged Demonic Leopard was already very near to him.
He could tell that the Winged Demonic Leopard was probably trapped in that space. From the beginning of the battle, the battle area had not changed at all. Clearly, there was something abnormal about it. The movements of the Winged Demonic Leopard had been restricted meaning that he could only attack within a small space.
Such a technique of trapping a monstrous beast with an invisible barrier was not a normal one. It could actually be a technique used by the immortals.
However, in the air, it did not seem like a stratagem had been set up. Moreover, it was impossible for one with just the abilities of an ancient martial art practitioner to set up a stratagem in mid-air. Hence, what exactly was it that could create such an effect?
“You talk as though things are very simple. Indeed, treasures without owners are up for grabs. However, if not for the fact that the Winged Demonic Leopard has already been trapped by us, do you think you would have the capability to obtain the Green Primordial Mirror? It is us who have put in the effort to trap this monstrous beast. What right do you have to steal the Green Primordial Mirror from us?” Jiang Gujian said, smiling coldly. The gaze that he used to look at Mo Wen grew colder as well. A killing intent was ignited in his eyes. If not for the fact that he was still guarding the Winged Demonic Leopard against escaping, he would have already attacked Mo Wen.
“So, have you obtained the Green Primordial Mirror yet? Since you haven’t gotten it, it is a treasure without an owner. If you think that the Green Primordial Mirror belongs to you just because you have trapped the Winged Demonic Leopard, you can feel free to release it. We can all compete on equal ground once again. Since you are not willing to release the Winged Demonic Leopard, you can’t blame us,” Mo Wen said with a cold smile. He was not one to reason things out with others. In the ancient martial arts world, it was the survival of the fittest. That was an unchanging fact. If the roles were reversed and Intentionless Sect had been the ones to trap the Winged Demonic Leopard and were discovered by Weapon Forging Sect, they would definitely not give up on the chance to obtain the Green Primordial Mirror as well.
Any logic had to be reasonable.
“Why are we talking nonsense with them?” Jin Ying was the most direct. Without another word, she immediately traveled into the battle area with a flash. Her powers were unbelievable. The Winged Demonic Leopard was immediately faced with danger as it was encountered another strong opponent, on top of its injuries.
“You guys!” Yan Tao was furious. It seemed like Intentionless Sect was bent on contending for the Green Primordial Mirror. What had he trapped the Winged Demonic Leopard and prevented it from escaping for? At the moment, they did not even have the strength left to go against Intentionless Sect.
Mo Wen took a step out and with a tap of his finger, a blurry sword Qi shot out. In the blink of an eye, it had struck the Winged Demonic Leopard, directly cutting off one side of its wings. The attack was absolutely shocking.
“Kill!” Chen Zikuang celebrated with a loud cry. The huge inkstone in his hand grew larger immediately before it viciously hit the head of the Winged Demonic Leopard. It almost knocked the strong Winged Demonic Leopard out as the beast retreated a few meters.
Initially, with the abilities of the Winged Demonic Leopard, such a scenario would not have been possible. It could have been because it was unable to handle the overwhelming number of people attacking it.
“Golden Dragon Dual Dancing Whips!” With a yell from Jin Ying, gold whips flew out from each of her sleeves. The two golden whips were actually regarded as a spiritual weapon and a very scary one at that. One could only see the gold whips extend instantly, looking like two golden dragons flying in the sky.
